 Attlee, Clement Richard Attlee, 1st Earl
As leader of the Labour party from 1935, Attlee was an outspoken critic of Conservative foreign policy, objecting particularly to the government's failure to intervene in the Spanish civil war.
Under Attlee's leadership, the Bank of England, the gas, electricity, coal, and iron and steel industries, and the railways were nationalized.
Labour won the 1950 general election by a narrow margin, but in 1951, Attlee decided to go to the country again and was defeated.
